About the Addison Gallery of American Art
One of the first institutions dedicated exclusively to American art, the Addison Gallery has one of the most important collections of American art in the world. Through the museum’s collection of over 25,000 works across all media, visitors can trace the cultural, political, and social forces that have shaped the American experience from the 18th century to the present. In a typical year, the museum presents 12-15 shows, including both permanent collection installations and major traveling exhibitions, carefully balanced to represent a wide range of art, across time and media. A teaching museum located on the campus of a secondary school, the Addison Gallery serves not only as an educational resource for Phillips Academy but as a cultural and educational center of American art for local, regional, national, and international audiences. The museum is free and open to the public.
